Introducing Vintage No. 1

Middle Brook Fiberworks presents Vintage No. 1. This artisanal yarn is a sumptuous blend of hand-selected fleeces from Shetland and CVM (California Variegated Mutant) sheep, raised by small independent farmers. The natural brown, warm grey, and ivory tones of the wool are enhanced by a glimmer of silk: golden muga for the Chestnut and Beech, and creamy tussah for the Almond. The colors evoke winter landscapes, sharp cold days warmed by afternoon light.

Vintage No. 1 embodies the characteristics of a woolen spun yarn with its airy and lightweight handle and minor variation in thickness. It retains all the bounce, loft, and crispness of the highest quality wool fleeces and yields an elegant fabric with excellent body and refined finish.

Farms of origin: Marushka Farms in Danville, PA and Ewe Can Do It Farm in Ottsville, PA. Processed by Gurdy Run Mill in Halifax, PA.
